So, okay, TJ Lane attempts an escape and threatens police with a weapon, and continues to be proud of his crimes.
Darrien Hunt goes out, basically, cosplaying with a fake, harmless sword. Hurts no one.
And people want to tell me racism is over?

Rest in peace, Darrien Hunt. I’m so fucking sorry.
When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?
im just thinking about darrien hunt (the black guy who had a fake sword and got shot a bunch of times) like witnesses say he was walking around the strip mall area doing spins and listening to music through headphones like such a harmless youth-spirited person. and his friends that were on the…
Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
I just signed a petition to The Utah State House, The Utah State Senate, and Governor Gary Herbert: Several days ago, a 22-year-old black man, Darrien Hunt, was shot multiple times in the back while running from Saratoga Springs, Utah, police officers. He was carrying a fake sword, so was, essentially, unarmed. He might as well have been carrying a stick. The officers, armed with ambiguous information, guns, AND Tasers, still shot and killed him. The details are sketchy. They have not provided answers to the family OR the community. The attorney general’s office is reportedly investigating. It is TIME for change. This is a racist crime. Children of color are a huge minority in this state and in real danger. We are calling for a citizen review board and for reform in police officer hiring and training.
He was Cosplaying and had a fake sword on his back and was shot from behind by police.
WHAT THE FUCK
If a white boy walked around with a samurai sword, he wouldn’t be gunned down by the police.
DARRIEN HUNT WAS COSPLAYING WITH HIS SAMURAI SWORD AND THE POLICE MURDERED HIM.
